History

This is a Second Empire style home which was a dominant style for American houses constructed between 1860 and 1880, although the first examples were built in the 1850's. with later examples occurring in the 1880's. This house at 47 6th Street is a raised 2-story home with a trademark Second Empire mansard roof and unusual projecting round arched dormers filled with double panes of round arched glass. The building has an unusual, raised limestone foundation with larger openings, which upon entry, causes you to stop down several step to the main room. In addition, there are Italianate style details such as paired brackets under the eaves. The main entrance could be a later addition with details that suggest the stick style. For example, the entryway doors are highly decorative and the entrance is covered with a clipped gable style roof overhang with turned posts and fancy stickwood decorations
